Who is the hypocrite here?


These voices tell me I am Christ!

After years of soul-searching, the Catholic Church adopted the position that the death penalty must be shunned in all cases. The reasoning is not as complex as some would make it. It was arrived at after years of more gradual change…allocating exemptions, dispensation, small steps towards the position now held since 2018.

I bring it up as the abiding doctrine that should rule over – and against – the decision made by a right-wing Catholic organization to identify the US Attorney General as a “Christlike figure” – issuing this plaudit in between his oversight of two federal executions.

How to call ’em, Bill!

This electric hatchback sells for less than $6K in China

This endearing micro electric-car is called the Wuling Hong Guang Mini EV. Currently, it is only sold in China and built by SAIC-GM-Wuling Automobile, a joint venture between SAIC Motor, Liuzhou Wuling Motors Co Ltd, and General Motors. The car launched at the beginning of summer and has been a notable success. According to GM Authority, Wuling has received 50,000 orders since its initial launch.

…Around 15,000 customers took delivery of their new Hong Guang Mini EV during the month of August, and that alone has meant a 104 percent sales increase since July alone. It makes it very possibly the top-selling battery EV in China right now.

Standard safety features include anti-lock brakes, tire pressure monitoring system, and rear parking sensors. Press photos show that the Mini EV has air conditioning, power windows, a stereo, and the pedals feature a positive or negative symbol…

Since my wife and I are both retired, we drive her car to town for grocery shopping and any other errands we need to combine…once a week. La Fiesta is easy on the petrol bill; so, it’s no big deal. But, if we were going through the process – as we did several years ago – of buying a useful, small, economic vehicle for this sort of transport, the Wuling Hong Guang Mini would fill the bill, perfectly. With five figure$ leftover.

As long as my 26-year-old Ram pickup continues to start and run just fine…that covers the task of hauling our accumulated household trash to the county transfer station about eight times/year.

Common sense is a bear, isn’t it?
